Why should I certify my organic product?

The certification of organic products by an accredited Certification Body assures consumers that products have been produced or processed to national or provincial standards for organic production.

Aside from the quality assurance that certification provides, provincial organic certification regulations regarding the labelling and marketing of organic products in B.C. changed in 2018. All producers, processors and handlers of organic food and beverages require documentation to prove that their products (and/or processes) are certified by an accredited Certification Body.
